Next, it will be time for a visit with Mrs Claus. Listen to her read her favourite Christmas tale, and lead a sing-along for everyone’s entertainment.
Then of course, it’s time for a visit with Santa! He will be there to meet all of the girls and boys who will get to personally tell him what’s on their Christmas list. Families will visit Santa as a group, and each child will receive a special Christmas gift from Santa Claus himself. Don’t forget to post your letter at Santa’s official post box!
